Assessment methods

Assessment occurs through the application of knowledge and theory within desk-based research,
presentation of ideas and solutions to address the task presented. Written submissions and
verbal/visual presentations, portfolios and blogs are an underpinning feature of assessment across
the programme.

The development of practical skills related specifically to festival working practices will occur in
most modules and will allow for a range of assessment methods to be put in place which will
include (but not limited to);
??Essays and reports
??Portfolio collection
??Blogs
??Individual and group presentations

At this level students should be able to demonstrate that they can competently identify a series of
tasks and highlight potential problems through the application of various written documentation.
Project scoping and the delivery of project plans will be a feature of Level 5. This will be in addition to the essays, report and presentations required in Level 4.The final written piece of work will be in the form of a research project that will competently demonstrate the breadth of aspects delivered across the programme from Level 4 through to Level 5.
Portfolio work is intrinsic to this programme and students will be required to demonstrate knowledge and understanding. Critiques will be based on specific goals formulated for the assessment requirement. These may be reviewed at any stage of the project, for example at the earliest stage of project scope through intermediary phases as well as the final stage. Through the assessment process as well as group tutorials students may be asked to substantiate their proposals and defend their ideas as part of a process of collaborative problem-solving.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
